I originally wanted to check out at 12.00, then go for lunch and then just stay in the hotel (taking advantage of air-conditioning and Internet connection for the entire afternoon). This plan would have been perfect but Tez wanted to go to a neighboring city called Trikala. I didn’t want to but since it ...
